Legal So, there I am enjoying a nice Gilmore Girls episode after a long day's work, and Engadget's iPhone application brings the good news: the US Library of Congress has added a DMCA exemption for jailbreaking or rooting mobile phones! This is a major blow to Apple, who actively tried to keep jailbreaking a criminal offence, and a major win for everyone who believes that the phone you buy is actually yours, and not the manufacturer's.

So it won't affect me ...

The day I pay ~ 500-600 $ for a mobile phone it better be open and upgradable ..


If you don't like it / "the license" so to speak don't buy it.

Vote with your wallet.
